Dining out at the best cafes and bistros.
Whether you're driving the Pacific Highway or exploring the quiet country towns nestled just off it, travelling can make you hungry. So be sure to make a detour for these suggestions to tempt your tastebuds, the next time you dine out in Bulahdelah, Wootton and Coolongolook.
Andy’s Cherry Pie Café, Coolongolook
This much-loved highway café does sell other delicious food (chicken kebabs, falafel wraps, burgers, even spinach and feta gozleme) but it’s the cherry pies that bring the customers. Eat a slice for dessert plus get a whole pie to go.
Café On Main, Bulahdelah
A favourite of highway travellers for years, the homemade goodness here will tempt you in many ways. Try the pumpkin fruitcake or passionfruit and pineapple cake slice with your oat milk hot chocolate or enjoy their famous egg and bacon wrap.
Detours Café, Bulahdelah
Famous for their homemade gourmet pies: chunky beef, lamb shank, pepper steak, beef and Guinness, Thai curry chicken and more. Leave room for some of Gran’s apple cake.
Bites & Brew Cafe, Wootton
Great coffee and tasty cafe favourites to enjoy with the peaceful rural views or the local art on display. How about a veggie-filled frittata, corn fritter stack, eggs benedict with bacon or smoked salmon, a delicious cheesy toastie or perfectly-turned omelette?
Sit back and take in the peaceful view from the verandah or admire the local artist's works on display as you sip your favourite brew with a sweet treat.
Great Lakes Paddocks, Wootton
Enjoy a wine and cheese tasting flight at this winery, or come for a special event day with live music and pop-up kitchens from local eateries. Great music and great food alfresco.
Myalla Magic Café, Bulahdelah
Café favourites for breakfast and lunch in a heritage cottage. Try the vegie burger, samosas or Thai lamb wrap but always leave room for something sweet from the cake cabinet such as the lime cheesecake slice. Hot tip: the lumberjack cake.
Warung Peri, Bulahdelah
Authentic Indonesian food in Bulahdelah is just one of the many happy foodie surprises of our region. Whether you're craving a mouthwatering rendang or want to dive into a bowl of steaming mie goreng, here you can be whisked away to the tropical paradise of Indonesia, one bite at a time.
Sometimes you just need the right food, quick and easy, to eat on the run or in the park: sandwiches, pies, fish & chips, pizza, or your favourite Chinese cuisine. Here are some more great choices around Bulahdelah:
